One wrong word and everything goes wrong for a celebrity which can not only spoil their career but also might upset their fans to an extent that situations can backfire them. Well, many situations have similarly happened before celebrities had to make a public apology because of something that they said or did that caused huge controversy and here are the top 5 moments that you must know about.
Tiger Woods: Woods hit the headlines in late 2009 when he was having several extramarital affairs. In February 2010 he said, “I was unfaithful,” he admitted. “I had affairs. I cheated. What I did was not acceptable, and I am the only person to blame. “I have let my family down, and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect.”
Kanye West: At the MTV Video Music Awards on September 13, 2009, West took the mic from singer Taylor Swift when she was giving a Best Female Video acceptance speech. He said, “Taylor Swift, I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time…one of the best videos of all time!” And many fans were upset because of him. Kanye later spoke on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno saying, “I immediately knew in the situation that it was wrong and it was a spectacle.” “It’s actually someone’s emotions that I stepped on. It was very, it was rude, period. I’d like to be able to apologize to her in person.”
Justin Beiber: Bieber issued a statement while he apologized for using the N-word in a racist joke.

He said “I wish I had the chance to live those few moments again, but unfortunately I can’t. I have told Rihanna countless times and I am telling you today that I am truly, truly sorry. What I did was unacceptable — 100 percent. I can only ask and pray that you forgive me. “I have let a lot of people down. I realize that nobody is more disappointed in me than I am.”
